Where did my muscles go and it’s windy

This morning I did Jillian’s 30 Day Shred level 1. It was a tiny bit easier than yesterday, but also a bit harder since my arms are sore. Where did my strong swimmer arms go?? Oh yea… they went away when I quit swimming competitively at age 18 (6 years ago).

My last year of swimming… can you tell which one is me with our caps on??

After work I ran 4 miles with Barry at a 9:57 pace. It warmed up to the high 40’s today, but it is really windy. We are currently having gusts of up to 26 mph with sustained winds of 16 mph. That makes it feel more like it’s 34 degrees outside…. but I ran in shorts anyway. What can I say, I’m a beast! (or unintelligent…)

Mr. Boy joined us for around 1.5 miles of our run. He was actually running with us when the white pitbull-mix (who was loose again) charged us. Luckily Mr. Boy distracted him and they ran off into a field to run some cattle. They need to be careful, though. People will shoot a dog for messing with their cows.

Now dinner is in the oven and I am ready to grab a hot shower and crawl in to some soft fleece PJ pants. As I’m sitting here typing this, I am snacking on some homemade sweet pickles (not homemade by me). Yum!

What kind of cross training do you do?

Did you play any sports as a kid?
Mainly soccer and swimming, but I also played field hockey in high school (and miss it like crazy)

What are you having/did you have for dinner?

  1. Wind = no fun at allAfter reading your blog yesterday I busted out my Jillian DVD :). Usually for me cross-training means yoga.As a kid I ran track (high jump), played basketball and volleyball.Tonight Glenn and I are going to have Talapia and sweet potato steak fries (yum!).

    1. Hooray for Jillian! The only yoga I’ve ever done is the p90x yoga… I have no clue if Tony Horton’s idea of yoga is even close to the real thing.Those sweet potato fries sound really good!
